Education has the potential to change lives, communities, and the
world. In the United States, an education can open the doors of opportunity for
many, while in developing countries it can help drive economic and political
change. Hundreds of organizations dedicate their efforts to improving education and
striving to provide an education to people in developing countries.
One organization that is helping to drive change in our
classrooms, student outcomes and success, and teacher development is the Bill
and Melinda Gates Foundation. Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda
Gates are giving back to communities around the world and making positive
impacts in education and other areas including global health.
Bill and Melinda Gates were driven to create the Foundation
after they read an article about millions of children in other countries who
were dying from diseases that had already been eradicated in the United States.
One of the first initiatives of the Bill and Melinda Gate’s Foundation was to help
children in India receive polio vaccines.
As the years progressed, the Foundation expanded its focus
into other public health issues, homelessness in the United States,
agricultural research and support, and education. In the area of education, the
Foundation is focused on “College-Ready Education.”
The strategy behind the Foundation’s education efforts in
the United States is to prepare all United States students for college-level
work. The program focuses on improving teaching and learning by working with
states, schools, and other partners.
The organization conducts research and shares research
results, insights, and tools that support teaching, learning, and innovations
in the classroom. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations hopes to transform the
U.S. public education system so teachers can develop professionally to help
students learn and students can acquire the skills they need to succeed in
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s charitable investments
towards education could potentially lead to improving communities and the lives
of many people. By giving through education, the Foundation helps others
succeed in life and in turn give back to their community through their
